Lucy Wise

Live Music with ' Lucy Wise ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun 27th May 4-7pm. Free admission.

Celebrated Melbourne singer-songwriter Lucy Wise will be launching her much-anticipated third album, 'Winter Sun' at the Tathra Hotel.

Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia and internationally with her soulful voice, masterful storytelling, and intricate ukulele and guitar playing. Hailing from Margaret River in Australia's South West, she grew up performing with 'The Wise Family Band' until moving to Melbourne in 2009.

Lucys' songwriting weaves together traditional folk and pop influences with a strong focus on storytelling which is evident in the release of her two albums and two EPs in the last eight years. A seasoned performer, she has played to packed venues at Sidmouth Music Week (UK), The National Folk Festival (ACT), Port Fairy Folk Festival (VIC), Woodford Folk Festival (QLD) and many more.

Lucy's new album, Winter Sun taps into a deep well of everyday experience. The result of a hugely successful Pozible crowdfunding campaign, the record draws on Lucy’s experiences over the last few years of touring as well as times spent closer to home, walking the streets and creek paths of Melbourne’s inner north.

For her May East Coast album tour, she will be joined by double bassist Holly Downes (of The String Contingent) and accordionist Mischa Herman. Together, the trio create richly detailed music that explores themes of love, joy and sadness, friendships and the relationships people form with their environment.

“A wonderfully natural singer and uncommonly gifted writer. Prediction: within this decade Lucy will be a noted songster, worldwide.” – Doug Spencer, ABC Radio National

“Wise is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings.” - The Brag, Sydney

Jonathan Richman Experience

Live Music with ' Jonathan Richman Experience' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun 29th April 4 - 7pm. Free admission.

Jonathan Richman Experience is on a mission to celebrate the music of the boy from Boston. Jonathan Richman burst onto the music scene in the early 70s with his band the Modern Lovers and his proto-punk hit Roadrunner. Since then he has become known for his wide-eyed, unaffected and childlike outlook, and music that, while rooted in rock and roll, often draws on influences from around the world. Although you might not be familiar with the music, Jonathan Richman Experience will have you dancing and singing along with Jonathan’s upbeat, infectious and catchy songs.

The Jonathan Richman Experience (JRE) had their debut performance at the Candelo Village Festival in 2013 and was a big hit with the audience.  Andrew Gray heads up JRE, taking on the persona of Jonathan, which includes the odd rambling monologue.  It was Andrew’s crazy idea to create a tribute band based on the music of Jonathan Richman – someone very few people have heard. The band comprises Jamie Forbes (guitar) Myoung Jae Yi (bass) and Peter White (drums). To complete the unique Jonathan sound, Becky Lupton and Jo Dodds provide sweet back-up melodies.

Don't Come Monday's

Live Music with ' Don't Come Monday's ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 14th and Sun 15th April 4 - 7pm. Free admission.

"Don't Come Monday's" are five local musicians backed by two of the finest
musicians from the Blue Mountains - Chris Komorowski and Steve Clark.

Steve once resided in Candelo, and has been living in the Blue Mountains for
eighteen months. Steve is an exceptional bass player, guitarist and overall
musician. It is an honour to hear Steve perform and for venues on the
Sapphire Coast to support and acknowledge such prolific musicians.

Chris Komorowski left such an impression on audiences when he performed at
the Tathra Hotel in December. He blew listeners away with his solo on the
Hendrix classic "Little Wing." Chris' guitar playing is flawless. He is a
musical genius. Chris' solos are articulate and intelligent.

There is a unique connection between the three vocalists of "Don't Come
Monday's." Sam Stevenson, Colleen Spillane and Stacey Mills have performed
together on many occasions and their energy and interaction on stage is
uplifting. Colleen and Stacey's voices blend beautifully and their delivery
of every song is honest and a delight to listen to.

Sam Stevenson will also be playing guitar and performing a number of his
originals. Sam is a phenomenal singer and storyteller. He is so sincere in
his interpretations, especially of R&B songs. Sam will be appearing with
"Don't Come Monday's" on Sunday 15th April only. On Saturday 14th April the
group will be accompanied by Narooma based guitarist John Hoorweg, an
outstanding musician from the well known group Malumba.

It is also a pleasure to have Jonathan Trevena "Trapper" joining the band
this April. Trapper is a brilliant drummer and excels in many genres. On
this occasion he is thrilled to be playing one of the greatest styles of
music - that is R&B.

Not to be missed. "Don't Come Monday's" will be performing R&B "music for
your soul" at the Tathra Hotel on Saturday 14th April 4 - 7pm and Sunday 15th
April 4 - 7pm.

Sam Stevenson - Voc/Gtr (Sunday only)
Colleen Spillane - Vocals
Stacey Mills - Vocals

The Novellas are a 5-piece band from the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of NSW. Their songs are inspired by contemporary works of fiction from Australia and beyond.

The result is a rich tapestry of jazz-infused, folk-rock pop songs that capture the bittersweet literature that inspires them. The live show is peppered with armchair readings from these books. Michelle (on 17th) and William (on 18th) will be our readers for these shows.


The lineup is Myoung Jae Yi on guitar and vocals, bassist Josh Becker, Anna Martin on drums, Cellestine Janiola on vocals and Andrew Gray on vocals and piano.

There - by chance or destiny? - he has found a new band of castaways, troubled geniuses and misfits in the fertile rhythm-rich jungles of the Tropics - forming Rufino and The Coconuts!

The Coconuts provide a brooding backbeat to Rufino’s Euro-melodic stylings and the result is part Afro-Latin Tumbele, part Jamaican Rocksteady, part island holiday sleaze-pop – all wrapped up in a wild Voodoo ritual!
